    Perfect TV for my needs

    Since we became "untethered" and stream all of our TV now, we are realizing we can mount a TV literally anywhere that we feel like it -- no worries about how to get the cable to the TV. I spend a lot of time in the garage working on our vehicles -- I realized it would be great to have a TV out there to watch sports while working on cars. The price point on this tv made it easy to justify and it works great. The smart functions take me exactly where I want to go. I thought having the Alexa feature was a little corny but it works great. The remote control is RF not IR --- so I can be across the garage and not have to worry about having it pointed right. And it is really easy for me to jump over to YouTube for instructional videos on whatever work I am doing on the cars.

    Toshiba Fire TV Edition

    As our household transitions to cutting the cord (Cable TV), this is really a great 43 inch starter tv for one of our guest rooms to allow our guests to watch shows in their own leisure. Price point is extremely economical (under $200) and it's has outstanding picture quality and of course the convenience of Amazon Fire TV built in. We already have fire sticks on our other tv's to stream our favorite shows and channels so this Toshiba Fire TV was just what we needed. Wall mountable and I really liked that the necessary bolts/screws came with the tv. Screen menu is easy to navigate if you're familiar with Fire TV and sound quality is what I would expect from TV speakers.

    Having recently purchased a TCL type TV as well, there are notable relative positive and minuses of the Fire TV type TV. First the antenna input is marginal, the replaced TV had a booster amplifier in the TV, this one apparently doesn't and my antenna signal is no longer strong enough to avoid the picture from periodically breaking up. It is difficult to change channels except with a universal remote control, there does not appear to be any way to easily change channels. The Alexa interface is amusing, a better remote would be a positive. The only initial on setting is the last input, the TCL type had an actual default, a much better choice. Tech support in the "manual" and from Toshiba is nearly non existent. TCL offers a one hour DVR type interface on the antenna via a memory stick, this TV is limited to approximately 3 minutes and won't use the memory stick. Overall, a good TV and price but I wish that I had purchased another TCL type TV.

    My 1st smart tv. It is different than a regular tv, which I am adjusting to, because there are cool things too. I gave up cable a few years ago, going with an antenna and Roku stick. I wanted an Alexa connection, but also got some things I didn't know about, such as the onscreen program guide. And, "on demand" like features with some apps, such as ABC app, to catch shows I missed. As for this TV, I like the picture quality, and more. One miss - is no sleep timer on the remote, which is an AmazonFireTV remote. Thru many clicks there is a sleep timer, but it doesn't work when you set and then go to a show. Only appears to work within settings page. ?#!? Maybe software change will eventually fix it. Over all, I am happy with the TV.

    I can't complain a whole lot about this, since it was so cheap (and on sale to boot), and I love the fact that the stand/feet are a lot closer together than most TV's these days, which was one of the selling points for me....makes it fit on a wider variety of stands, tables, etc. than ones with the legs all the way out in the corners. And I also like that it has FireTV built in, so we didn't have to buy another device from Amazon. Picture is nice, even though it's not 4K, but I have noticed the brightness slightly go a little darker briefly, then come back up (maybe Hulu or Netflix's fault??). The bad/frustrating thing......it is slooooooooooow! My stand-alone FireTV box is almost a couple years old, and yet it is WAY faster to navigate than this TV, which is brand new. Oh well, for about $219, I couldn't pass it up.

    Good TV but Fire TV is not full Fire TV support

    I like the TV, it's a good picture and decent sound for built in speakers. However, we cut the cord a couple of years ago and one of our primary apps is Plex. We have Plex on our Fire TV stick so we naturally assumed that Fire TV everywhere would have the same app support. This is not true. It took a call to tech support to find out the app isn't available yet, but *could* show up anytime. Having learned the hard way that stated "future support" does not guarantee support and this time has already been out for over a year I am returning the TV to get a different brand with but a brand based smart hub that has Plex support. If the Fire TV apps are not important then this is a solid TV.

    This TV looked like a great value - good picture, nice interface, looks sleek - but it has a major audio/video syncing issue that is intermittent, but occurs frequently with any app (cable/satellite tv does not have the issue on this tv). I was told by Toshiba that it is probably my internet speed or distance from the router, but I have ultra high speed internet and no other smart tv in the house has this issue and this tv is about 15 feet from the router! I have seen others with this frustration with the Toshiba Fire TV regardless of the screen size and model so I am guessing it is a quality control issue. I wouldn't recommend this tv if you are going to stream content which is kind of the main purpose of a TV like this.

    I just set this up today and it took me a while to get the picture looking good. We've had so many TV's in this house I've become a semi-pro at setting up a picture that meets my approval. I didn't want to buy another Samsung, the one I'm replacing is a Samsung and it only had a max of 27,000 hrs on it- the backlight was going out, which I think is terrible. You should get about 100,000 hrs on a tv, at least that's what the techs say. The new one had everything on it I needed and it was a reasonable price, especially since they only last 4-5 years anyway. My recommendation is to buy the 5 year extended warranty, it's worth it!

    4.5 stars, rounded up because of the value for the money. Great picture and sound is fine, certainly adequate for a bedroom. I only use this for DirecTVNow, Amazon and Netflix so I can't speak to how it behaves otherwise. Set up was pretty easy. It took me awhile to figure out that you have to press the mic button for Alexa to listen to you (which seems like a good thing--who wants an eavesdropper in your bedroom!), but the voice controls I've tried seem to work well. Sometimes I find it tedious to go through so many menus to find what I want, but that may be the fault of the particular streaming service, rather than the TV's interface. So far, I think it's a great product for the price.

    Issues with volume control

    I purchased this tv in August. In September I started having issues with the sound turning off and the only way to get it back on was to turn the tv off and back on or go to the input and choose the input again. I called customer service and a technician was sent out and he stated that the main board needed to be replaced. The main board was replaced and guess what, it’s doing the same thing AGAIN. I’m very disappointed in the quality of this television and do not recommend that anyone purchases this television.

    Accompanied a friend to the Best Buy store to find a reasonably priced TV to stream channel options for her growing family. Friend is not advanced in tech, in any way. I showed her the TV's on sale for the size she wanted, and the Best Buy department employee took her the rest of the way by answering her questions. Turns out, she set up the TV by herself, and didn't need me or to call for technical assistance, because the employee took the time to give her simple instructions. Thankful for the store employees. They help those who are confused about all of the new technologies!

    I bought this as a television for our home gym (not nearly as grand as it sounds) and didn't need a particularly high-end TV. I didn't know if I wanted all the features included on this model, but the price was good for the size and I had faith in the brand. The TV turns out to be tremendously good! The voice control on the remote is surprisingly useful, and once you have programmed in all your streaming services and connections, the FireTV functions are very easy to navigate. I am very pleased with this purchase, which turns out to be better than I had expected.

    This is my foray into the Smart TV arena. It takes some time getting used to how it operates versus a conventional TV. As other reviewers have mentioned, switching channels is different. Channels are not listed numerically and the remote does not have numbers. I have discovered that you can use the microphone on remote to switch channels. Say "go to NBC and it will go my Over The Air NBC channel. You need to know the network names. That helps with that learning curve. After that, things are very similar. Overall, this seems like good TV at a very reasonable price.

    Can't go directly to a specific channel. No channel button to go up or down or punching in a number to go directly to desired channel. Now I have a problem with the remote. Poor. Some buttons don't work anymore. Only had set working for one week. TV keeps wanting me to connect to internet. I originally had it set to basic TV. Will not use internet or Amazon. Cannot use voice commands on remote unless you sign up for Amazon. Bogus. Smart TV, no way. Changed batteries and some or most of the buttons not working. Also, there is a slight humm coming from the TV.

    This tv is perfect for those that want to break free of cable subscriptions. I have purchased Roku TV's in the past and this is overall a better TV Pros: Very fast streaming Above average sound Great picture Capable of everything a firestick is Works with Alexa Works with Harmony Hub Cons: Doesnt play audio through optical No screen share Power on/off with smarthings but not good automation otherwise. Overall great TV for basic use or limited use with smarthings control

    I had to buy a new TV. I choose this one partially because it was on sale. The other reason was that it is Amazon Fire enabled! I no longer need my Fire TV. I was able to elimate cables, wires and remotes. The TV remote is the same as the Fire TV remote with buttons for Prime Video, Netflix, HBO and Vue. I am able to access tthem easier. The color is vibrant and clear. Clear picture with good sound.

    Don't buy if you want to use SLING

    Purchased on 15-Mar-19 worked great with SLING until SLING updated their app on 20-Mar-19. Now you get a double picture after local ads are inserted into the commercial space. Spoke with both Sling and Fire TV folks who acknowledge this issue. I have three other TV's on FireTV or Fire Stick and they all work fine with SLING. The issue appears to be that the 43" FIRE TV is a revision behind in the FIRE OS update cycle. This TV works great with Netflix, Pluto, etc. Hopefully they fix this soon.

    Frustrating interface

    Had this tv for a month before it broke and I returned it. That’s not why I didn’t like it though. There’s no traditional remote- just the fire remote. It’s simply too difficult to configure. At one point - while trying to customize settings such as brightness or color - you had to change the settings then reset the input to see the result - then if you didn’t like it you then had to go back and try again. Poorly designed interface.

    We returned the LG to the store and replaced it with a Toshiba, which is the brand we had before. Since this one is newer the color is great, but it comes with Firestick already installed. That we did not like and we installed ROKU in addition. ROKU has a much better selection of free apps, while most of Firestick need a monthly fee. We have found that all the pay for view movie channels don't have such a good selection of choices, even if they are advertised as such.

    I purchased this TV to replace an older flat panel TV in our bedroom that had died. The picture is fabulous, and I have no complaints so far. I have seen other reviews that have complained about the poor sound quality of this TV. The sound from this TV is awesome compared to the poor sound quality I was getting from the Coby model that this TV is replacing. IF you are concerned, buy a sound bar, but we found we don't need one.
